On Friday we travelled to our friends' home in Bellbrook, west of Kempsey. I'm not sure if you'll be able to see this map (please let me know if you can't because this whole post hangs on the maps!) -- it shows the route by road but we actually took the train from Blaxland to Strathfield, then from Strathfield to Kempsey where our friend met us and drove us out to Bellbrook.
We had a great time visiting with them and were sad to leave. We arrived home at 9:45 last night.
Today, despite the rain, is washing and re-packing day.
Tomorrow we leave for my mum's home in Bingara and on Sunday we'll travel across to the coast to Woolgoolga, the town whew DD, DIL and the Grandboys live.
We'll be there for five nights and drive home next Friday.
See you soon!
